Takeo Onsen
The Essential
At the foot of Mount Horai, the spa resort of Takeo has been attracting visitors for 1,300 years thanks to its hot alkaline springs, reputed to leave the skin soft and supple. The spa buildings are located in the centre of the historic town behind the huge red Romon tower gate, topped with a two-storied roof in 1914, designed by Tatsuno, architect of Tokyo railway station. Still open to the public, Tonosama-yu, the oldest bathing house adorned in marble, was reserved for the aristocracy in the 18th century.
